Privacy Policy Generator Rocket Lawyer vs Termageddon

So you’re looking for a solution to help you with your website policies? Well done! Acknowledging the need to comply with privacy laws and respect the data of your website users is the first big step a website/business owner needs to take. Now that you’ve taken that step, what’s next?


Well, all that’s left to do is find a provider that can scan privacy laws around the globe, identify which ones apply to your website, generate policies with all the required disclosures, and update each of your policies accordingly as laws change or are created.

There’s one clear winner for this undertaking, and that is *drumroll*… a privacy attorney.

HOLD ON, DON’T LEAVE!

Privacy attorneys are ideal because they’re the only ones who can offer legal advice in addition to website policies. Unfortunately, the fees associated with that legal advice can be hard to swallow if your name doesn’t rhyme with Beff Jezos.

That’s why so many people turn to Privacy Policy Generators as a more affordable way to comply with privacy laws.

So, without further adieu let’s compare two of the most popular Privacy Policy Generators: Termageddon and Rocket Lawyer.

  • Utah Consumer Privacy Act (UCPA – effective date December 31, 2023)

Rocket Lawyer:

  • Their Privacy Policy generator page seems to suggest that the policy is compliant with GDPR. However, the Privacy Policy is not compliant with GDPR as it is missing very crucial disclosures such as the legal basis for processing the information and a full list of the rights offered to residents of the EU.
  • The Privacy Policy that is generated also has references to the CCPA. However, it does not comply with this (outdated) law as it is also missing the required disclosures such as the categories of personal information collected and the full list of privacy rights offered by the law.

Automatic updates

Termageddon: 

  • Automatic updates offered on all policies
  • Updates have been made on time for every new privacy law and regulations. 
  • Has a state privacy bill tracker

Rocket Lawyer:

  • Does not provide any information on updating the Privacy Policy.
  • The Privacy Policy refers to an out-dated privacy law (CCPA).
  • Their Privacy Policy checklist says nothing about the Privacy Policy needing to be updated either.

Privacy experts

Termageddon: 

  • President – Donata – licensed attorney, etc. 

Rocket Lawyer: 


Does it help figure out what privacy laws apply to you?

Termageddon: 

  • Yes, the first page of the Privacy Policy questionnaire helps determine what privacy laws apply to you. The rest of the questionnaire is based upon the disclosures required by those laws. 

Rocket Lawyer: 

  • No. You just fill out your company name, website address, physical address, phone number and email address. There are no other questions that are asked to determine what privacy laws apply to you.

Privacy Policy generation process

Termageddon: 

  • First page of the questionnaire actually helps determine what privacy laws apply to you; 
  • The questionnaire includes all of the questions needed to create the disclosures required by the privacy laws that apply to you; 
  • We don’t make assumptions nor insert generic information for these disclosures; 
  • Privacy Policy combines all privacy laws that apply to you.

Rocket Lawyer:

  • You just fill out your company name, website address, physical address, phone number and email address. There are no other questions that are asked to determine what privacy laws apply to you. 
  • Then, your information that you provided is used to fill out the blanks in the policy template. 
  • The template includes very generic information and in some places requires you to fill out the information yourself. For example, here is the “collection of your personal information paragraph”
  • The paragraph states that you may need to submit your credit card information which would make no sense if the website does not collect that or does not accept payments. 
  • The Privacy Policy states that I do not sell personal information even though I did not say that; 
  • The Privacy Policy states that I track user behavior and the pages that people visit even though I may not do that at all; 
  • The Privacy Policy does not comply with any privacy laws as it does not include all of the necessary disclosures for any of the privacy laws (including GDPR and CCPA which it refers to within the policy itself.
